Phish Summer 2018 Series- Curveball

The 10th print in my summer tour series. Inspired by the Spanish poster for “It! Terror From Beyond Space” (1958).  This was the toughest print for me to create.  This one took me the longest to create, apart from the pressure of making it a good one (it felt like a lot of people were waiting for this one).  I had almost finished it up when I decided to start over and create a new version.  Lots of time was spend painting sloth fur, as well as even more time fixing it digitally.  Being self taught, I’m pretty sure there’s an easier way to do all the things I do in Photoshop!  As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and digitally arranged. Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and will be available on lot before the shows.

Phish Summer 2018 Series- Merriweather

The 9th print in my summer tour series.  Inspired by “The Mummy” (1959).  This was actually the first one I did in the series.  I was creating a bunch of sketches for ideas at the time, and the Mummy/Merriweather seemed to work out well.  The poster was based off several of the Mummy posters, and of course, the song Tube was in my head the whole time I was working on it.  As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and digitally arranged. Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and will be available on lot before the shows.

Phish Summer 2018 Series- Alpharetta, GA

The sixth print in my summer tour series.  For the Alpharetta shows I was inspired by the iconic poster for Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958) by Reynold Brown.  By the time I got to this print, I felt way more comfortable working in Brown’s style and decided to change things up a bit. Although I drew the background true to the original, I replaced the 50 ft Woman with a llama, mainly because I found it humorous.  The background was once of the most complicated to draw, with so much going on.  As always, the images are all drawn, inked and watercolored, then scanned and digitally arranged. Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and will be available on lot before the shows.

Phish Summer 2018 series- Austin TX

The fifth print in my summer tour series.  For the Austin show I was inspired by the poster for The Giant Gila Monster (1959).  This was a simple one, basically a recreation of the original poster that I hand drew and colored.  I used lyrics from Shafty, since they were similar to the poster quote (“Only Hell could could breed such an enormous beast!”)  Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and prints will be available on lot before the show.

Phish Summer 2018 series- The Forum

The fourth print in my summer tour series.  For the Inglewood show at the Forum, I was inspired by the poster for the Japanese kaiju film “Yog:Monster From Space (aka Space Amoeba)” (1970).  This was probably my most complicated illustration to date in the series.  I had to create quite a few different paintings to get all the elements I needed to recreate it.  Instead of the Earth, I opted for an Inglewood landmark, the Randy’s Donut sign.   Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and prints will be available on lot before the show.

Phish Summer 2018 series- San Francisco

The third print in my Summer tour series.  For the Bill Graham Auditorium show in San Francisco, I created a print inspired by the posters for Reptilicus (1961) by Reynold Brown, which takes place in San Francisco, as well as The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953), artist unknown.  As I continued this series, I felt more comfortable altering things, in this case, replacing the monster from the Reptilicus poster with the monster from Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, which I felt better fit the use of the Lizards lyrics.  The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image.  They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster.  Prints are 13×19 on cardstock, signed and limited to an edition of 150.  Prints are currently available for sale in my shop: www.joseeen.etsy.com , and prints will be available on lot before the show.

Phish Summer 2018 Series- The Gorge

The second print in my summer tour series.  For the Gorge shows, I decided to create an homage to the poster for “The Amazing Colossal Man” ( 1957) which was illustrated by Albert Kallis .  In place of the colossal man, I opted for George Washington, since it definitely seem appropriate for a show taking place in George, WA.  Using photos of Washington’s actual uniform, I  recreated the original poster, adding the actual Gorge background, as well as the stage. The print was hand drawn in sections, then inked and watercolored to create the complete image.  They were later scanned, and digitally arranged to create a version that is true to the original poster.  This was originally the only poster to not contain Phish lyrics, but as I created more posters (which included lyrics), it seemed like the odd man out.  After many suggestions from others, as well as lots of researching, I finally decided on lyrics from 555.  Oddly enough one of the planes has 555 on it, so it seemed fitting that I ended up using lyrics from that song!
